• What is the difference between MDF and particle board?

    MDF and particle board
    MDF is made by breaking wood down to it's basic fiber. The process is very similar to how we make paper. Water is used to unravel the wood cells or fibers, then the water is removed. An adhesive is added to the fibers which forms a mat that when heat is applied under pressure.

    Particle board is manufactured by cutting logs or pieces of wood into chips. The chips come in different sizes from large (also called wafers of flakes) to small to even tiny. The small and tiny chips fill in any gaps the the large chips create. The chips are then mixed with adhesive and pressed.
